No. Not legally. If the couple received a valid license to be married and did so, they are legally married. The license would have had to be signed at the time it was received at the clerk's office, and would only have been issued if the proper indentification and requirements were met. The married couple is not required to file their own proof of marriage. The legal validation of the union is finalized by the judge, minister or whomever performs the ceremony issuing of the marriage certificate. A marriage license is NOT acceptable proof of a legal marriage.
